You’ve got a friend in Year 1!

Year 1 and Mrs Bird presented a wonderful class assembly this morning! The focus was on the children’s history topics, so they told us all about toys from the last century. showing us some of their own favourites from today as well as some special ones lent to them for the class ‘museum corner’ by grandparents. The children also displayed some stunning three-dimensional artwork and puppets they had made… all with a backdrop of  images from their trip to the Bridewell Museum earlier this term.  The song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” was a great addition to a lovely assembly, and of course there were special moments with family and friends afterwards, too. Well done, Year 1!

Look out for the full gallery of pictures in the next couple of days!

Year 1 trip to Bridewell…the gallery!

Last week we reported briefly on Year 1’s fantastic trip to the Bridewell in Norwich. At this treasure trove of a museum, they explored all kinds of items from the last hundred years or so, such as mangles, shoes, games and even Christmas crackers! The main focus was on toys, though, and the children were able to look at and handle toys from the past, compare them to ones from present day and – as a link to our science topic – talk about the different materials they are made from. They sorted, drew and made a climbing man puppet each and enjoyed their lunch in the prison yard.  The children are now busy learning songs and poems about toys for their toy-themed assembly next half term on Tuesday November 7th.
